Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7324) Ganglia plugins for metrics v2
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 03:39:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7324?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13041966#comment-13041966

Luke Lu commented on HADOOP-7324:
---------------------------------

My limited knowledge with gmond wire format is from a quick scan of the GangliaContext\*.java
source.

I have a question that I hope Ganglia experts can answer: the wire format seems _sparse_,
in that it contains full key value pairs. I wonder if the update can be sparse as well, i.e.,
the metrics that haven't changed since the last snapshot doesn't need to be sent to gmond
as well. The metrics2 system allows sparse update to reduce object/bandwidth usage.

If the update can be sparse, it quite straight forward to adapt FileSink and GangliaContext
code. OTOH, If only dense update is allowed, {{o.a.h.metrics2.util.MetricsCache}} can be used.

> Although, all metrics in metrics v2 are exposed via the standard JMX mechanisms, there
are a few users who prefer using Ganglia to collect metrics.
